I don’t know about you, but I have an actual house phone. With a cord and everything.
Usually though, I don’t answer it. Unless I look at it and recognize the phone number calling me.
It’s more of an emergency line. Or an “Oh, you need a phone number?” number
…because I’m not ever gonna give you an ACTUAL way to reach me because I never want to talk to you and the only reason I gave you THIS number is because you required a phone number.

Otherwise, call me on my cell!
If I like you, you have my cell number.
And you definitely have a better chance reaching me.
I mean…my phone is almost on vibrate, BUT! I usually stick my phone in my bra.
So, I’m not actually groping myself, guys. I’m trying to answer my phone.
(Hi Mommy! I know you are SO PROUD of your oldest child right now)

A DISCLAIMER: BY GIVING ME YOUR CELL PHONE, YOU ARE AGREEING TO RANDOM TEXTS/PHOTOS/RANTS IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT
You are free to answer them whenever you’d like, unless you text me at 3AM talking about you need a ride home from the EMERGENCY ROOM.
In which case, YOU BETTER BE THE PROMPTEST MOTHER FRACKER ALIVE when it comes to responding to texts of “ARE YOU OKAY? And/or WTactualF IS GOING ON?”
If you are sensing underlying hostility, good. You should be.

What does this have to do with the price of bananas? (Hey Nisha, see what I did there?)

On July 6, 1971, Henry T. Sampson was awarded a patent with George H. Miley for the invention of the gamma-electric cell,
a direct-conversion energy device that converts the energy generated from the radiation of high-energy gamma rays into electricity.
He did NOT invent the cell phone! But. This invention produces stable high-voltage output and current to detect radiation in the ground without the use of a heat cycle;
the gamma-electric cell made it possible to send and receive audio signals via radio waves without wires;
therefore,rather than inventing the cell phone (available in 1983), he co-invented the technology which made the cell phone possible.
Other patents include a binder system for rocket propellants and explosives and a case-bonding system for cast-composite rocket propellants
both related to the manufacturing and production of solid-propellant rocket motors.

Sampson was a pioneer in academia as one of the first African-American chemical engineering graduates.
He went on to become the first African-American to earn a PhD in nuclear engineering in the U.S.
He sure is one smart motor scooter!

No? FINE.
